  1. Thank you for a realistic view on the war in Ukraine. Here in the Netherlands, I need to be silent about this subject, for the lie is kept alive, in all levels of our society. I don't know any person who knows the truth about what's going on in Ukraine.
    Hatred towards the Soviet Union, its communist regime, is still prevailing.
    And a blind eye is turned when it's about the US' insane presidency and Biden's performance in public. Even a double may be used to keep the show going. I can't see the deep sleep continuing in those who are hypnotized. We're heading for a worldwide shockwave of realisations in pockets of human societies, with many in shock and quite a number plunged into harsh living conditions. Europe's economic crisis is a manufactured consensus, part of a scenario for sure, as I see it

  2. This guy is a moron. Some things you should know about him:

    On July 27, 2020, the White House announced Donald Trump's intent to nominate Macgregor as U.S. Ambassador to Germany. Following the announcement, Macgregor's history of controversial remarks received media attention. He has asserted that Muslim immigrants (referred to as "Muslim invaders") come to Europe "with the goal of eventually turning Europe into an Islamic state". Macgregor has argued that the German concept of Vergangenheitsbewältigung, used to cope with Germany's Nazi past and its atrocities during World War II, is a "sick mentality." Macgregor has also stated that martial law should be instituted on the U.S.-Mexico border and argued for the extrajudicial execution of those who cross the border at unofficial ports of entry. Macgregor has also made statements in support of Israel having defensible borders, the annexation of the Golan Heights, and the decision to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem. In a column in The Washington Post by Max Boot, he was described as "a racist crackpot who is pro-Russia, anti-Merkel, anti-Muslim and anti-Mexican." His nomination stalled in the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. On January 3, 2021, his nomination was returned to the President under Rule XXXI, Paragraph 6 of the United States Senate

  3. 🇷🇺 Will end this war on their term. They do not trust anyone from the west so the end of Ukraine 🇺🇦 armed forces is going to be inevitable and painful that 🇺🇦 will endure for decades.


  5. These broad and challenging observations about Ukraine loosing would carry more wight if coupled with analysis of event in the from which don't seem to back up what the speaker is saying.

  6. I sometimes wonder if Douglas is working for Putin. Every day he is pumping out videos saying Ukraine will fail. Why is he so obsessed with Ukraine losing. He must have made over 100 videos saying Ukraine is losing and failing. I wonder if the FSB have something on him

  7. They will send all their arms to Ukraine to the last bullet and still not be worried because they have their Nooks waiting. This is what they want and what they are hoping to achieve. They want a nuclear war between Russia and NATO so that the US can be great again like after WW2.

  8. 🎯. Russia pushed to protect predominantly ethnic Russian areas bordering them. Appeared to initially intend to minimise Slavic loss of life and infrastructure, enforcing Minsk agreements. Been under sanctions for years so pivoted. Conflict simply highlighted areas of weakness accelerating strategic rethink to reinvigorate economic and military prowess. So sad that greed and hubris of politicians living in a cold war mindset has led to the needless death and destruction on both sides.

  9. Man like Col. Douglas MacGregor are becoming a rare species indeed, high-profile officials and/or former officials which whom carry old school norms, ethics and integrity. What happened to those individuals one wonders? Intellectual-heavyweight voices which whom are able to speak out loud about things that really matters in life like the truth, and/or actual real events at hand! Opinionated and factual analysis or simply sane commentary in Europe or the United States, which was the norm back in the days, is what we need in this harsh and somewhat apocalyptic world we, unfortunately are finding ourselves in these days.

  10. Macgregor is nothing but a crackpot, racist and deluded Putinist clown.

    Nobody of any note or import takes what he says remotely seriously & it amuses me no end to read the Russbot comments on here praising him for his speaking ‘the truth’. LMFAO 😂!

  11. What is it with Macgregor? He is working very hard to disparage Ukraine. Everyday he has something negative to say. It's as if he wants Ukraine to fall into Russian occupation and tyrannical rule. It's as if he cares nothing for human lives, never mind freedom and democracy. It's as if he would welcome Russia taking all of Europe. For sure Russia will not stop at Ukraine if allowed to get away with this invasion, destruction and genocide. It's as if Macgregor is working for Putin. Is he?…Shameful.

  12. COL Macgregor has consistently stated the truth in opposition to the party line. Western Europe has had over 70 years to build up their defenses, but they would rather rely on their rich uncle to intervene and our politicians are more than happy to oblige, with the proper kick-backs, of course.

  13. Oh, please. Reading the comments is making me nauseous. Just because someone served in the military does not automatically mean they're always right. This same man stated in 2012 that the Army Airborne Corps and the entire US Marine Corps were no longer needed because they were about at relevant as the US Army horse cavalry in the 1930s. That should piss off every Marine. At the start of the Russian invasion he declared that Putin should be allowed to take whatever parts of Ukraine he wanted. Those words alone should disqualify him from ever being asked to deliver an opinion on the conflict. I cannot understand how anyone, including those in the comment section, can proclaim that fighting to defend your home against a ruthless aggressor is actually wrong.
